Strzała Bałtyku (English: Baltic Arrow) was an express train of the Polish State Railroads, which in the interbellum period travelled from Warsaw, via Laskowice Pomorskie, to Hel, crossing the distance within 6 hours and 50 minutes.[1]

After the war, the train continued service on a changed, shorter route, going in early 1960s from Warsaw to Gdynia in 4 hours and 18 minutes.[2] The 1960s train, which used steam engines, was faster than contemporary InterCity Express Kaszub, which takes 4 hours and 26 minutes.
